After having a setback with my last build it was time to rebuild it and make it even better. The hyperlow thought it was necessary to burn out the esc mid air and go do some searching for dinosaur bones 10 feet under ground.
Luckily some parts survived so I could use them on this build.

Since I love Aikon stuff I was really happy the flight controller survived, did need to get a new ESC... The Aikon 32pin 35a 4in1 served me well and I love the functions and stability so got the same one again. Love how the made it pnp.
This is my first build where I hooked up the white wire from the Falkor to the cam control, didn't need to setup anything it just works perfect!

For the vtx I went on a budget and got a Foxeer Cleartx2, am kinda bummed that I couldn't get the TBS pro32, will get it in the future tho. The Cleartx2 works okay but doesn't support soft serial like the TBS and needs his own uart. The power seems less than the specs say, doesn't get the range my tbs does. Am happy with Foxeer having great service, getting a new vtx and hope that it solves the range issue.

The Foxeer Falkor deserved some more testing so got the same as my previous build just before the released the Predator V4. I do Like the way it displays the colors but it is a bit hard to see some gaps and things like that. Might switch to the Predator in the future. Will keep using the mini cams, they are way superior over micro cams.

Antennas wasn't a hard one, bought a bit to much lollipops lol so just used one of those. Do love the TBS Stubby pro that just got released and already had a weak spot for VAS, the next step will be a big antenna upgrade on the quad and goggles.

The 2 brotherhobby's on the back survived, being on a budget made the choice of getting 2 more was easy so am running the R6 2207 2700kv again. Really like them so this isn't a punishment.

After getting some Johnyfpv props to test out I'm totally hooked on the flow and control. will be using them alot this season, they are really impressive and fly so freaking good.

This build left me speechless, it flies so incredibly smooth and has lots of control. The handling is simply amazing. The weight is perfect for flow and freestyle, it gives enough momentum for all the tricks. Already crashed it hard, like really nasty and it didn't give a crap.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
